Water (H2O)

So this post is not just for you guys but its also a wake up call for my sister who barely drinks water. I thought I dedicate this post to her with love. The benefits of drinking water are many and they should
be taken seriously. Dehydration can cause many health problems and can even lead to damage to the kidneys in old age. Giving our body living water is the most health aware choice we can make. Our body cannot function properly when it's deprived of water. Did you know that a body loses at least 2 ½ to 3 quarters of water every day? An average person should be drinking up to 2 quarters of water every day to replenish their system. However, the amount of water your body requires increases if you are over-weight, or are very active. Most people don’t know that hydrating our body actually helps us lose weight. Here are some more great benefits to drinking water:
  • Maintains muscle tone
  • Relieves constipation
  • Treats fluid retention
  • Rids the body of waste
  • Helps endocrine function
Cold water is best as it absorbs into our body faster than warm water.
When we drink water, we actually help each organ function properly.
Just breathing takes up to 1 ½ glasses of water each day. Our lungs, skin, intestines and kidneys together require at least 10 glasses of water everyday! The water from our body is basically lost through urination, perspiration and breathing. This means that if we are very active or drink coffee or tea, then we should remember to increase the amount of water we drink each day. Signs of dehydration is dry skin, lips, feel tired or bladder aching. Hope you guys now understand how important water is for you!
